Our kids love this, every time. After they get over that I’m feeding them LEAVES. Every. Time. 

The “I actually like this, mum” still makes me smile *grin*




  • 4 cups Baby Spinach Leaves, washed as needed
  • 2 Small Persimmon or 1 Large
  • 1 Large Avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 Cup Slivered Almonds
  • 2 Tbs Dried Currants


  • Preferred Dressing. I like to drizzle a lemon mustard dressing. French dressing works just fine, too.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Peel your Persimmons, and cut into thin wedges, about 4mm thick on the outer edge. If your fruit is particularly large, cut all the wedges in half.

Step 2

Cover your serving plate with the spinach leaves

Step 3

Scatter the avocado pieces over the bed of spinach leaves

Step 4

Scatter the persimmon pieces over, evenly.

Step 5

Finish up by scattering the almonds and currants over the salad. Leave it undressed, for people to dress as they prefer.


If you’re stuck for Persimmons, give it a go with Mango. Sweeter, but still super delicious.
When you’ve people over, this salad is the one you handball to a guest wanting to help out… easy enough for anyone to do, so that you can all keep chatting!
